when pope francis makes his congressional debut today, many believe he'll have some things to say about america's free market. he called the unfettered market something that ruins society. the leading expert on vatican issues, "pope francis, among the wolves, the inside story of a revolution," marco, are we looking at a pope that will be hostile to our system of government? >> i don't think so. the pope says very clearly he comes here to the united states as brother. he wants to speak about tough issues which are important for every nation, which is -- which are important for all peoples on the world. it's not only pope francis who has used such tough words
3:18 am
against unfettered capitalism. john paul ii spoke about the risk of radical capitalist ideology. this doesn't mean absolutely that the popes are against free market economy. all the popes are in favor of free market economy but they feel that's the social doctrine of the catholic church that there must be a system which is also helped by rules which are aimed to foster the common good. that's the core of the ideas of this pope and also of the other popes. >> you also call it -- but he called it the dung of the devil. it's hard to see some gray area there. >> that's an old middle aged expression. may be a tough expression, but what the pope wants to say and also other popes have said is that if there is only a profit oriented mechanism which doesn't take in account also the

3:20 am
wants that in the united states as in italy, as in europe, as in other countries especially in the first world it is understood that also within the northern hemisphere there are masses of people who are in very difficult situation and that there is a widening gap between people who are at the very top and whose wealth is growing and people who are in a very difficult situation like also the president of -- this widening gap is what concerns the pope. >> if he said widening gap i thought that would have been probably more accurate. thank you very much. appreciate it. coming up straight ahead, the conservative kid famous for his critiques of the white house just got blocked from the president on twitter. c.j. pierson speaking out this morning. and would you walk nearly

3:46 am
the ideology there is jihad, you know, against the west. it's not a good thing these guys are going to go back and be bad. right now we're down to the worst of the worst at guantanamo detainees and they're going to keep doing it. >> here's the thing, rob. not only are they going to send him back to saudi arabia. because he's been behind bars so long, saudi arabia says, welcome home. you can live like you want. become the honey farmer, something like that, but the united states will monitor these guys to make sure he doesn't do anything bad. >> they're saying they're going to monitor him in saudi arabia. they're also sending a lot of them back to oman. most of these were people who worked as body guards for osama bin laden, spiritual advisers to a lot of the al qaeda guys. a lot of them fought at torah boro.
3:47 am
so we're down to the people we found on the battlefield. we don't have great evidence on them. these are people that were detained. this is a problem for the men and women that died trying to get them to quan tan him in mow bay and for the people of september 11th. >> our government thinks they've been fixed. you've met these guys. what are we doing with them at gitmo to make us think, okay, he's new and improved and he's not going to start shooting at us again? >> well, the thing about quarterback p guantanamo bay, other than being on a tropical island, it's like some of the detention islands we have, they spend a lot of time in the yard. it's like a school for them. they're going around talking about the tactics that we used to get them so they can be better. learning to be better jihad dis. they pray more. they're more concentrated on it.
3:48 am
it's not as bad as people think. one guy i'm pretty sure had a match.com site. >> yeah, we heard about that. >> if you were president of the united states, rob o'neill, what would you do with this guy? >> this is tough. you know, i'm obviously not a lawyer. my job was to get these guys behind bars. we need to keep them though. this is a new war. we need to keep them indefinitely. it's not up to me whether we need to take them to the states or put them in a super max. we can't put them on the battlefield. they'll come back with a lot of street credit and put in leadership roles. they're going back to oman and yemen. al dade is trying to reenergize its base and get high level leadership like this will help al qaeda. it's going to -- >> well, he waited us out and now he's been sprung. rob o'neill joining us from lansing michigan. thank you very much. >> what do you think about that? meanwhile, this little girl of an illegal immigrant making major headlines this morning
3:49 am
after getting past security to reach the pope. how did that happen? we're going to tell you what we know. and her father, a police officer killed in the line of duty six years ago, but on her wedding day, his comrades would not let her dance alone. that bride joins us with a few of the officers who made her day and are going to make your morning. ♪ ♪
3:50 am
3:51 am
3:52 am
pretty much every girl dreams of the day her father
3:53 am
will walk her down the aisle on her wedding day. for kristen that day would never come. her father washington state sheriff's deputy was killed in the line of duty in 2009. but his comrades in blue were not going to let kristen stand alone at her wedding this past saturday. one officer actually walked her down the aisle, and three more took turns sharing in the traditional father/daughter dance. a moment that brought this bride to tears. joining us now, kristen rendell, seattle police department detective don jones who walked her down the aisle and pierce county deputy sheriff brian anderson, one of the officers who surprised her with the dance. we thank you all for joining "fox & friends" this morning. kristen, how difficult was it for you to be planning, you know, the biggest day of your life, arguably, without your dad? and what was the question that you popped on the detective? >> it was very hard to plan. i mean planning any wedding is super hard, let alone not having my father there to keep me calm
3:54 am
and talk me through things. so it was extra hard. and then to ask don to walk me down the aisle, it was the day after i got engaged, i went over to his house and i was like, so will you walk me down the aisle. and he didn't even believe me that i got engaged until i showed him the ring. he was like, are you being serious or are you joking with me right now? i said oh, i'm being serious. it took him a minute to realize i was really being honest and asking him to walk me down the aisle. >> and detective, when you hear that, what did it mean to you and why was it important to you to do exactly that for kirsten? >> it was very, very special to me. and you know, with the history with kirsten, and her family, it was very special. it meant the world to me. >> well it is so moving to see that. you know, deputy anderson, kirsten, you're in the middle of the father/daughter dance with the detective, all of a sudden you feel a tap on your shoulder, as i read, and who shows up
3:55 am
right there for you? >> brian was there. well, jim, and then after brian anderson walked up. >> deputy, when you were there, and you started dancing with kirsten what message did you want to send to her? >> i just told her what a beautiful bride she was, and how much of an honor it was to be able to share that moment with her. >> of course. you know, kirsten you we're looking at the back of your dress now. and i know you had a blue ribbon woven down the back of it. what was that for? >> it was to represent the thin blue line which is like the brotherhood of law enforcement, and that it has always meant -- it's been like a huge representation of law enforcement, and it's meant a lot to me since my dad died. i even have a thin blue line tattoo on my back, as well. >> what a remarkable sight that is to see your dress. you actually had a chair, specially dedicated to your dad, kent mundell right there with you pictured for our viewers at
3:56 am
home. what would your dad say about the officers stepping up for you on this big day? >> i think he'd be very proud of them. he was so -- he loved being an officer, and he -- they were all his friends and his brothers and they're family. and so i know he's so happy that they're still including us, and they still support us every day, and they're always there for us. and i know he'd love that. >> did you feel him on that day with you? >> i did. i felt him. i knew he was watching over me and that he was proud of me, and who i've become in the last six years. he would love my husband. so i knew he was there with us. >> an incredible, incredible moment right here with us that you're sharing. kirsten we thank you for that. deputies and detective, we can't thank you enough for what you do every day, and what you did for kirsten and her family. >> it's our pleasure. >> definitely our pleasure. >> what a story. congratulations, kirsten.

4:00 am
turns out it wasn't the machine, it was our detergent. so we switched to tide turbo clean. now we get way cleaner clothes way faster he turbo clean. 6x the cleaning power in ½ the time live from new york city, ladies and gentlemen, we're in the popemobile. this is the fiat 500l, just exactly the same car that the pope has selected to get him around washington, d.c. hi, everybody. >> it's nicer than i thought. >> the windows allow you to see everybody outside. pope francis wants to be as close to the people as possible. this is his message vehicle of the year. >> when i saw this at andrews air force base at first i thought, okay, look at that, fiat has created a limousine. they didn't create a limousine.
4:01 am
this is just something off the factory assembly line. it sells for about $20,000. and brian you'll notice in the back -- brian by the way is in the pope chair right now. >> i'm -- >> there's so much room in this car. >> maybe chrysler would import on fiat -- >> i wonder how the market will be affected by the pope driving a fiat, how many more people will be interested in purchasing this vehicle after this week right here in the united states. it's certainly interesting. and now it's a busy vehicle today. the pope is going to address congress for the first time a joint meeting at 10:00 a.m. >> that's right. this is a fox news alert from the streets of new york city where the pope will be later on today to washington, d.c. we have live team coverage. peter doocy is on the east front of the u.s. capitol. mike emanuel starts our coverage on the west front. hello, mike. >> steve, good morning. we expect the pope will speak in english and we're told there
4:02 am
will be no teleprompter. and beyond that there's great anticipation about what pope francis will say to the united states congress and to the american people. in a little bit more than two hours the pope and his official delegation will arrive here at the u.s. capitol. at 9:20 the holy father is scheduled to enter the u.s. capitol. at 9:25 speaker boehner welcomes the pope and they're due to have a one-on-one meeting. at 9:46 the speaker will all the house to order. at 10:01 the house sergeant at arms will make the announcement, mr. speaker the pope of the holy see. inside the capitol there are duct taped xs and other visual instructions marking where vips should stand at important moments. positioning, for example, for departure for the vice president, speaker boehner, and house democratic leader nancy pelos pelosi. there's great anticipation from republicans and democrats about various issues the pope may touch on during his speech. republicans undoubtedly wanting to hear issues such at defensive
4:03 am
life, traditional marriage, and democrats likely want to hear more about climate change and immigration. speaker boehner's kind of taking more laidback approach saying that lawmakers should basically chill out, relax, listen to what the pope has to say, and perhaps look for a little inspiration. steve, back to you in new york. >> okay, mike emmanuel, thank you very. >> inspired to get something done? >> out of the popemobile, back to the curvy couch. >> we're faster than a fiat. >> nice car. >> beautiful car. >> we're going to talk to the guy who brought it here for us today in about ten minutes. >> if you're looking for a spokes model all three of us will be interested in that. now we turn to steve doocy live on the other side of the capitol far away from mike emmanuel. >> and fiats. we only have big suburbans here so far. to rewind to yesterday there were two really remarkable things about the pope's parade through washington, d.c. first was the way that people
4:04 am
reacted. they were cheering, and crying, and gasping as the popemobile neared and then quieting down to reflect about what they had just seen and may never see again, as he pulled away. second, nobody moved after waiting up to seven hours the crowd was 30 deep in some places, and still, hardly anyone risked losing their spot for the pope's pass. later in the day pope francis led the first ever canonization mass on u.s. soil making father junipero serra the first ever american saint. the mass at the basilica at the national shrine of the immaculate conception drew 25,000 ticket holders. and today something special. junipero serra helped colonize california in the 1700s. there is a statue of him inside the u.s. capitol. it is one of five catholic statues inside, and at some point, the pope is expected to stop and pay a visit. back to you in new york. >> all right, peter. peter, an hour ago i mentioned that you probably wound up with
4:05 am
the first selfie with the pope at andrews air force base. i think we've got from your instagram. this is your selfie from yesterday. tell us what's going on there. >> it was a good shot. the crowd, we could hear and see the pope coming closer, and it was well enough that i was able to turn around and our producer jake gibson took that picture. you can see rick morris one of our photographers. >> oh, i see so it's not really a selfie. it's a jakey if jake gibson took it. >> it was. but it was a powerful parade. it was amazing to see how people reacted. i was lucky to be there. i will never forget it. >> thank you for sharing all those images with us. peter, great work there as always. we're going to turn to heather nauert who has breaking news. >> certainly do. hope your parents got some pictures, as well. >> they did. good morning. i've got a fox news alert i want to bring you. breaking overnight the death toll from the stampede in saudi arabia is now rising. up to 310 people have been
4:06 am
killed. the stampede happened at a camp in nina just outside the muslim holy city of mecca. an estimated 2 million people taking part in the traditional hajj pilgrimage. at least 450 others have been hurt. it's not clear yet what prompted that stampede. well the former miss usa ali landry and her family are grieving this morning. her father-in-law, and her brother-in-law, have both been murdered in mexico, after they were held hostage. it was a 16-day ordeal. her film producer husband's father and brother kidnapped in tampico, mexico, despite a ransom being paid for their safety, the two men were found dead in a region known for drug cartel violence. well, hillary clinton's firing back over allegations that she started the birther theory that claims that president obama was not born in the united states. republican candidate donald trump has prompted that theory for years, and is now claiming that it was clinton who started it, all back in 2008. but clinton telling cnn the
4:07 am
birther claim was, quote, ludicrous and totally untrue. well, imagine getting billed for $2 million for using your cell phone for just one month. an oregon man says he canceled his plan with verizon after just one month, last year, because he felt he was being overcharged. but a few months ago he started getting letters from collections agencies saying that he owed thousands of dollars in back payments, and then he got this call. >> the amount now due is $2, 156,593.64. >> really? i might laugh, too. except he's been very concerned that this new house he's trying to buy may be jeopardized by this bill. he's been unable to get a response from the phone company. the phone company now says that it is resolving that issue, and those are your headlines. we've seen some crazy cell phone bills but $2 million. that's a mistake. >> holy cow. >> that will not be -- ouch.
4:08 am
>> thank you. >> so this may be just me, the president -- the pope spoke in english yesterday. >> yes. >> that's correct. >> it was an amazing to see him. he's picking up english better and better and he gave his remarks. contained in those remarks is something i think that republicans and democrats at some point a little upset. but yesterday he also brought up the fact that sometimes war, and a lot of talking points, he outlined the pope's remarks and said i want to show you how the pope was actually subtly calling out the president. >> and he did that. you know, president obama took the moment to get political when talking about diplomacy to the pope. watch. >> thank you for your passionate voice against the deadly conflicts that ravage the lives of so many men, women, and children, and your call for nations to resist the sirens of war, and resolve disputes
4:09 am
through diplomacy. >> okay, so then get the president talking about how to figure out how to do things peacefully through diplomacy. bill o'reilly, during his talking points, as brian was just talking about, makes a great point, and that is when you look at the arc of the president's foreign policy history, perhaps he has done more to hurt than actually help. watch. >> this diplomacy is good. and we should always try to use it. but when diplomatic efforts fail, concrete actions must be taken, mr. obama's abdication from iraq, and his failure to confront the killer assad in syria has led to catastrophe. hundreds of thousands of poor people murdered or driven from their homes. hundreds of thousands. as pope francis surely knows, it's not enough to give peace a chance, when innocent civilians are being murdered. and their entire lives uprooted. when that happens, action must be taken.
4:10 am
but president obama has failed to take action. and now we have a colossal migrant crisis, and hundreds of thousands are dead. speaking of migrants, immigrants, here in this country, there is a moment yesterday during the parade in washington, d.c. when a 5-year-old girl, whose parents are apparently in this country illegally, she got over the metal barrier. there she is, 5-year-old sophia cruz, she got -- she ran toward the pope and then the secret service people stopped her and then the pope waved her over. . they brought her over and he kissed her and he hugged her, and she gave him a t-shirt, and also a letter. >> and she said she was worried that i.c.e. would take her parents. what a moment. getting within the pope, then getting a hug and kiss, delivering a t-shirt and a letter to pope francis. i'm asking why she got through,
4:11 am
though. she did -- there was a gloria secado, director of a group based in los angeles, and apparently they organized a trip to washington from south carolina for six children, and 19 adults to communicate -- part of the group. she went there with her dad. and she wanted to communicate to the pope their concerns, and this group organized just that and she got through. the pope has expressed his love for children, and she with that yellow shirt caught his eye. he waved her through. the secret service. but some people are asking this morning whether or not that was safe. >> well, she -- she started -- >> i'm sure an adult probably put her over the metal barrier. >> how do you get security on the same page to do that. >> she ran towards the pope, and then they stopped her. but then the pope waved her over. you know, how did she, you know -- >> i think getting there was organized. but this moment right here. you couldn't have planned what was going to happen when the pope is reaching out to hug this little girl. >> right. this anti-deportation group came
4:12 am
all the way from los angeles. and their intent was to get the pope's notice. and by giving her the t-shirt and the letter to give to the pope, ultimately, they accomplished their goal. but you know, it is quite a picture. >> it sure is. >> and that is the story behind the story. >> so is sophie cruz looking right now. >> all right meanwhile the pope also yesterday was talking about religious liberty. >> kentucky clerk kim davis breaking her silence right here on fox news. >> it's a valid point. it's a fight that's worth fighting for. >> there is more from the cable news exclusive with that clerk fighting for religious freedom straight ahead. >> and is pope francis a false prophet? judge napolitano says it looks that way so far. he will join us next. >> and that's the west front of the capitol where thousands are gathering for the pope.

looking live, as you can see this is a shot from the u.s. capitol down toward the mall, where in less than two hours
4:17 am
pope francis will arrive on a historic visit to congress. he's going to be the first pope ever to address a joint meeting of the senate and the house of representatives. you'll see it all live right here on fox. but from criticizing capitalism to absolving abortions and easing annulments pope francis has drawn a lot of criticism for straying away from the traditional teachings of the catholic church. is he doing more to further a far less agenda than to save his follower's souls? fox news senior judicial analyst judge andrew napolitano is catholic and has written an opinion piece on the pope's controversial news. he joins us from the office building on capitol hill. judge, in your op-ed today you say that the pope is taking the church in dangerous directions. how so? >> in a couple of ways. first of all, good morning. >> good morning. >> this is a very, very festive time and a festive place and the capitol is welcoming him with open arms. but people need to realize the political motivations behind this pope from latin america.
4:18 am
he's harshly critical of capitalism. he's staunchly in favor of redistribution of wealth. he's absolutely associating the moral authority of the papacy to the untested and questionable green science of al gore. in terms of discipline in the church, he's made it easier for people to have abortions because absolution is easier. easier for people to get annulments because you don't need a trial anymore. you can just get it administratively. attacking the culture of life. and attacking the family are two favorite targets of the left, particularly the latin american left, and i felt compelled to articulate this this morning. >> well, judge, when it comes to catholic doctrine, you, you know, admittedly you are a hard-liner when it comes to it. but when you look at what the pope is trying to do, where if you had a divorce, and it would be easier for you to have communion or when you were younger and you had an abortion and you now feel that that's a
4:19 am
mistake and you want to amend it, i think that's a good thing. i think, you know, it shows the mercy. people can change their minds. they can have a change of soul. >> you know, history will tell whether or not it's a good thing. but people need to recognize what's happening right before our eyes. and when the pope puts the moral authority of the papacy behind arguments like the reason we have poor people is because we have too many rich. the rich have too much wealth. that's an inappropriate use of the papacy. he's basically arguing that to be a good catholic you have to accept his economics. the pope is a vicar of christ on earth, i respect that and i believe it with all my heart. he's infallible on matter of faith and morals. thank god it's just faith and morals. because his economics is a latin american version of marxism which simply is inconsistent with prosperity in the west. >> well, i tell you what -- >> now i have to go to confession, steve. >> yeah, good luck with that. they know you in jersey.
4:20 am
all right judge napolitano, if you want to read this op-ed, it's interesting. go to -- i believe it's going to be on foxnews.com and at the washingtontimes.com, as well. all right, judge did you notice how when you just laughed it echoed through all of capitol hill? >> yes. the cnn people who are right next to us are complaining bitterly and they're accusing me of doing it intentionally. >> what did you say? >> i'm going to be -- i'm going to be on the floor of the house of representatives when he speaks in a few hours, and john boehner has told me not to laugh. >> really? i don't know what he's talking about. i think it sounds great. judge, thank you very much. >> all the best, stevie. >> okay. >> who needs fingerprint, we've got a laugh print on that guy. 20 minutes after the top of the hour. the texas teenager arrested for bringing a homemade clock to school now wants to sue. but there's a big twist this morning. it may not be the first time this has happened.
4:21 am
and you saw it just a few minutes ago, we drove up in a popemobile. we're going to take you inside the pope's ride. good morning, todd.
4:22 am
4:23 am
4:24 am
24 minutes after the hour, and you are taking a live look at capitol hill. and that is where the pope is just hours away from addressing congress. so what's better than a papal edition of your news by the numbers. first the number is 30. that's how many people are in the pope's entourage. it includes clergy employees with the vatican's press office and also his trusty translator. $175. that's just one of the deals that ticket scalpers are offering for tickets to see the
4:25 am
pope. of course the tickets were originally supposed to be given out for free. but some selling these instead. this deal, the seller even threw in some rosary beads. and finally, $85. that's how much it will cost you to fly right over the gridlock in manhattan while the pope is here. blade is a company that offers helicopter rides in the new york area. it will fly people across town during rush hour tomorrow. and they just might need it. steve, let's head outside to you. >> all right. thank you very much. you think that his holiness would be travelling in a big limo, in style. but you'd be wrong. check out the pontiff's poped up ride. it's a dressed down, frugal fiat 500l. just like the one we've got, we're standing in front of right here, live in our new york studios. ladies and gentlemen, i'd like to introduce you to the guy from ramsey fiat, todd van duran. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> fiat usa have any idea the pope was going to show up and start driving around in their car? >> i don't believe so, no.
4:26 am
we called them and they had no idea. it was something that he picked. it was his doing. he decided he wanted to drive around in this car. >> it's incredible. what features about it. we can talk about how accessible it is. we're going to hop inside. is it the price point and how much you can see from the inside? we were surprised how much visibility you have. >> it's got great views. it's got high glass, plenty of room inside of it. >> you've got an american -- >> -- discover an old chrysler now. >> there's been some speculation that the fiat that the pope is in has some special bulletproof qualities to it. can you put that to rest? is this something that has not happened? >> i called fiat. they said as far as they know it's just a regular vehicle. >> could you actually do a confession in the back where -- >> you could. >> the pope could just do that. >> you want to tell it? >> if the pope's there. >> you could do it. >> come around this side. let's show the folks exactly the view that the pope has. this is the seat.
4:27 am
>> come on in. >> where the pope sits. and elizabeth's right there. >> you be the pope. >> elizabeth you sit right there. >> okay. >> the thing about leg room, the thing is there's a lot of head room. >> a lot of head room, yes. >> this is actually quite comfortable back here. i don't feel squished. how many people could fit in here do you think? >> how many? >> well it's five passenger. >> oh, really? let's try it. let's see how many people we can get in the car. joe, come on. christena, come on over here. i'll tell you what -- come on over here. come on. what's your name? there you go. just some lady who -- >> in the back seat. >> don't worry about your purse. >> slide over elizabeth. >> okay. all right. >> you know what? let's give a count. oh, man. >> we got -- in the front seat we got four in the back. >> comfortable? >> i mean this is comfy, yeah.
4:28 am
>> nice to meet you. >> nice to meet you, too. >> we have seven. >> come on! >> it seats seven. >> do you have a seat belt on? >> he's getting out of the fiat, from the popemobile. >> thank you so much. >> thank you very much. >> just somebody walking down. hey todd, by the way, at ramsey fiat. >> thank you very much for bringing her by. >> oh, thanks. >> what a great ride. >> all right. meanwhile, heather tell us what's coming up next. >> only on "fox & friends," how much fun we're all having this morning. 28 minutes after the hour. this is not what you wanted to hear this morning. the feds lost just more than 5 million personal files on americans. so who has them? we'll tell you about that straight ahead. and you know it when you hear it. that song that just makes you feel good. i still like a little white snake myself. now experts know why. we're playing your favorite feel-good tunes, coming up next. ♪ are you still getting heartburn flare-ups?

4:47 am
as he mentioned right at the beginning of his speech yesterday in front of the white house. he'll talk about religious liberty. i think bill o'reilly did a great job of pointing that out and what a big deal that is. religious liberty not only in the united states, but also -- but also around the world. that means places like iraq, and syria, et cetera. he'll also talk about immigration. and he'll say learn to have a more humane treatment of those who are searching for a better home. he'll also talk about climate change no doubt and he'll talk about the leadership role of the united states. >> father jonathan when you heard the pope speaking we had a couple of images. we had the little girl sophia cruz that he actually picked up, obviously a visual there in his humanity. we also heard him speaking to the president, talking about the protection and preservation of religious liberty. was that a shot at the president? >> well, it's -- he's very open to saying these are principles, they might have political consequences. deal with them. do something. i think what he's telling us is,
4:48 am
get back to the basics. i was with a police officer here who told me, father, it's only because of him that i'm staying within the church. and he said because -- i said well why? he said, well he just says it like it is and he says get back to the basics. do what you already know you should do. it's a very simple message. he'll then be going and passing out food and being with 200 homeless. he's telling us to get our hands messy, to get them dirty serving those who don't have the opportunities we do. >> of course. and by will, not mandate, i'm sure, is what -- rather jonathan, will he be -- >> that's a good point. >> will he be direct with those members of congress, the democrats, 177 of them, who have not gotten in the way of late-term abortions? will he look at them and speak for the dignity of the unborn? >> well, in cuba, something that surprised that he didn't cover much, he looked out at all the women there and he said how many of you are pregnant. and he said take your hands and put your hands on your stomachs, and protect the baby, protect
4:49 am
your baby. that's pretty direct. now, he has this way of being -- whoever he is with he talks to them as if they're the only ones listening. sometimes he will attempt to use the bully pulpit and talk to somebody else, it's not his style. it's about an encounter of culture. i'm with you. i'm talking to you. and so i hope he is direct. we'll see. >> well, what a special set of days, again, father jonathan morris, it has to feel extraordinary for you and we thank you for your time today. >> thank you, elisabeth. >> we got it. now coming up, a world record for -- world record holder for crunching numbers says kids are learning math all the wrong way. what? the human calculator joining us live with the secret that can make anyone a math whiz. next. i can't wait. but first, 1984, let's go crazy by prince was the number one song in america.

4:55 am
>> ever since i was a kid i would learn something in math and then i would sit there and figure out patterns and easier ways to get the answer. by third and fourth grade i was teaching my teachers better strategies on how to get the answers. the first one in third grade our teacher had numbers on the board to add up and she told us to start on the right and carry and i wasn't listening so i started on the left and did the tens first. 10, 20, 30, 40, 45, 50, 53. she said you're faster than i could do it. i figured out teachers don't know everything. they're just doing the best they can. and i believe there's better ways, and better strategies and techniques on how to introduce our kids to numbers. so i created a whole curriculum that's just to get kids to understand numbers. then our teachers can teach them math. >> where do we find that? >> my website is th the humancalculator.com. i have ways to understand them. >> i can't relate to that, what is your answer? >> i disagree. i've been visiting schools for

columnist and radio talk show host adriana cohen. i am surprised by this. are you? >> absolutely. the media's focus should be on hillary clinton blocking the -- saying she's going to block the keystone pipeline. what they should be educating the public on is the clinton foundation has accepted millions of dollars from exxon mobil and half a dozen other major oil companies. so if she truly is against fossil fuels, then why is she accepting massive million dollar checks from the very same oil companies? >> so now you have a situation, too, where this e-mail scandal is being investigated by the fbi, and reports by multiple news organizations shows that they've found her using, it seems to be, a business pile and a personal pile, within the e-mail server that they now have been able to recover documents. some of those documents if deleted after they were told not to, after a subpoena, could land her in jail. but that didn't seem to be a big deal on the nightly news. >> absolutely. i mean there you go again.
5:19 am
it shows media bayous in mainstream media. this is a huge story. our national security is so much more important than some off-the-cuff comment that dr. ben carson made regarding a muslim president. i mean, hillary clinton, as you know, created this private e-mail server system, which jeopardized our national security. we know hackers have already gotten into it. and the fact that the fbi right now has uncovered deleted e-mails, that can be very detrimental to her campaign. and it could also land her in jail, as you mentioned, because if she deleted e-mails after the congressional review on benghazi, they issued a subpoena for that information, if she destroyed it, that's obstruction of evidence of justice. >> it is. and by the way, just looking into nightly news, clinton got one minute on nbc and none on the other two. so her scandal is nonexistent on the three major networks which aren't quite as major. adriana cohen, thanks so much. >> great to be with you. coming up straight ahead we
5:20 am
move ahead. this is not the traffic jam anyone expected. >> are you kidding me? >> yeah, wait till you hear who was flying that plane. or driving. and he died in a hiking accident then came back to life. this man now a minister here to tell us what he saw on the other side. and it wasn't just heaven. (vo) what does the world run on? it runs on optimism. it's what sparks ideas. moves the world forward. invest with those who see the world as unstoppable. who have the curiosity to look beyond the expected and the conviction to be in it for the long term. oppenheimerfunds believes that's the right way to invest... ...in this big, bold, beautiful world.

5:24 am
there. oh, yes, it's a bird it is a plane! drivers can't believe their eyes as a small plane makes an emergency landing on a busy california road. the student pilot and the instructor thankfully were not hurt. >> because they got the light. >> go with the green. one of the worst parts about flying could get a whole lot better. a united states company has designed airplane seats that slide away from the aisles so boarding with carry-ons can be easier. the aisle grows by two feet giving passengers plenty of room to get on and off the plane. what about that? >> that's a good idea. >> experiencing death on the side of a mountain taught our next guest that dying is only the beginning. our guest is reverend peter the author of a brarnd-new book called heaven is beautiful. he joins us live in new york city appropriately as the pope is down in washington making his way here. tell us about what happened, march 1980. there you are on an ice climb, and being brand new at it, you
5:25 am
did a bad job. >> i did. i made a miscalculation in my equipment and i chose to use one ax in my left hand an a hammer, much shorter device in my right, because i couldn't find another ax. because i was a college student and didn't want to buy one, and it delayed our climb, significantly to the point where at sunset we talked our climb and all the other teams climbing that day had already left. and we were beginning our hypothermia at that point. >> and you say you died on the side of that mountain. >> i did. i crossed over and came back. what happened was on our third rappel down, the last rappel, the hypothermia had advanced to the point of being hot, and then went to sleep. and i've been trained as some time as a ski patrol at that point for quite a number of years and had dealt with it before, watched my progress. and the last time i began to fall asleep and fall off my
5:26 am
perch, i was harnessed in so i didn't fall far. it was like a cartoon at the end and i watched the fade to black. and i wondered what was going on. and i felt myself fall, and i felt myself hit the mountain, and i didn't fall asleep, and i was wondering why i wasn't asleep and i saw in front of me where, with my eyes closed, of the essence of death. i don't know what else to describe it as. it was a force that came at me, that i knew immediately wanted to take me. and i put up my reserve of my will, what was left from my struggle all night long against it, and it was -- it just took me. and the next thing i knew, i was in a greater darkness. that i could see in every direction and could hear everything. i had no ears. i had no eyes. i had no body. i was a soul being, and i heard my name called from deep inside of me. >> by whom?
5:27 am
>> well, i knew immediately it was god. and that god was right next to me. but i couldn't see god. i could see everything else. but not that. and the voice had no sound and it had no language, and it wasn't male or female. but it called my real name that i knew as soon as i heard it called. and i was infilled with beauty and truth and love and hope and compassion. and it was all one thing. >> was this heaven? >> it was heaven inside me. it was heaven inside me and then i went through hell. immediately in timelessness, there's no time, i suffered all of the pain that i'd caused my entire life and given to other people. >> what do you mean you felt this pain? >> i felt their pain. >> how? how? what did you feel? >> terror. suffering. hurt. immense guilt. >> peter, how long -- okay, you were dead.
5:28 am
and eventually you were revived. you are here today. >> i wasn't revived. i was given the opportunity to come back. >> explain that. what do you mean? >> well, i after i went through hell and god forgive me, everything, knew me, loved me, as i am, total forgiveness, i was reinfilled with this beauty and this love, and i said am i dead and a voice said yes you're dead and i said well i can't die. i said, my sister from our family's point of view, she had run away but my mother had suffered a greatly from this and i couldn't lose another child for my parents. so god showed me, took me, showed me all of earth and every human being on it and said in the way that i love you now, i've always loved you. and love everyone the same. >> peter, you spent your whole life since then trying to figure out what that was all about. you wound up going to yale divinity scn a pastor up in maine. you've searched for this. why do you think it -- and it's
5:29 am
interesting because with the pope down in washington, you don't always see god in a church. you can see him in nature, why do you think you were given the opportunity to come back? >> i spent a good part of my life thinking about that. and i think that i'm one small voice among many other voices from near-death people to speak the truth of the reality of god's meaning. >> to come and share this story with us. >> are you afraid to die? >> oh, no. no. and i say that having just had a heart attack four weeks ago, where i was critical and rushed to the hospital, and was completely unafraid. >> you're ready? >> yes. >> how are you now? >> i was the fittest guy in my town other than having a heart attack. >> you got to read his book. it is called kwgsz heaven is beautiful" how dying taught me death is just the beginning. thank you very much. >> thank you for having me very much. >> good day to hear this story. >> god bless you both. >> meanwhile coming up. you know the conservative kid famous for his critiques of the white house.

the ref's hat bounced off, too. he later would pick it up. and that's a quick look at what's happening in the world of sports. meanwhile a fox news alert, in just a short while pope francis will make history on capitol hill, becoming the first pope to address a joint meeting of congress. what do members of congress hope to hear from the holy father? >> time to weigh in is congressman mike kelly of pennsylvania, who joins us now. good morning to you. >> good morning, guys. thanks for having me on. >> congressman what do you expect to hear today? i know it's historic. it's going to be special. what do you think the message is going to be? >> yesterday the calmness descended over the city and it settled in now. i'm thinking the pope is going to deliver a message of mercy and of hope and everything we hold near and dear to us. i'm expecting to hear a little bit about life. the sanctity of life from its beginning to its natural end. i'm expecting to hear about immigration and climate change. i think none of us should be worried or afraid of what the pope has to say. i want to hear what he has to
5:47 am
say. i want to see how we can then use that in our lives to make it better for all the people we represent. >> one of your colleagues, catholic republican from arizona, is going to be boycotting because the pope has -- he says he doesn't need a lecture on climate change. what do you think about that? >> you know what? being a catholic myself i go to confession. and sometimes i don't like what the priest tells me but i take it in and say i've got to make my life better. i've got to work towards that end. colleagues have different views of things. we honor that. but i do. i want to hear everything the pope has to say. we are a nation of great people. and of great faith. and our judeo christian beliefs lead us in a way that other places in the world don't go. so i'm so anxious to hear what the holy father has to say, to bring it in, make it part of our life, and look at how we can incorporate these, all these ideas that he had, all these theories that he had. all the teachings that he had to make it not just a better krer but a better world. >> the opinion of pope francis is high and favorable.
5:48 am
68% find him favorable of catholics. 55% of favorability from all voters. in congress, 33% of congress members are catholic. how do you feel? what's the pulse in congress right now in anticipation of the pope's historic visit to this joint meeting? >> elizabeth as i said earlier, there is such a calmness and such a willingness to learn and to listen. i don't think this is a matter of what clinch you go to. it's what you truly believe, it's christ's teachings. for all of us it's a great opportunity. >> congressman, as we see a major figure like benjamin netanyahu and whatever world figure address congress, people stand, people clap, people sit. are we going to see any of that when climate change happens? are you guys going to sit and the democrats going to stand? >> you know what, i hope we don't see that because to me it's not polarizing. it's something that we look at. we have a certain opinion. we look at science and try to lead in the direction that we think is best for the people we represent. being a graduate much notre
5:49 am
dame, i just can't wait to hear this pope's message and what he has to say and what he brings to the floor of congress in a body that real lly needs to hear froa different perspective of how we can make the world a better place, our country a better place and serve people in the way we are supposed to. >> you see the motorcade making its way towards you right now. i'm looking for the fiat. >> we're going to see that within the next ten minutes. real quick before you go, how many people you haven't heard from for years have contacted you asking for tickets to this? >> it's almost the same as when notre dame was going to play for the national championship. i've got more relatives and more friends say hey you know, can you get me a ticket? it's going to be a big gathering. sofsh's welcome. but we don't have tickets for everybody as you know. >> absolutely. you've got to run to your seat. congressman mike kelly a republican for pennsylvania. thank you very much. >> thanks so much. god bless, guys. >> and that looks to me as if that is on the east face of the
5:50 am
u.s. capitol. >> that's right. >> the pope will be arriving shortly. >> somebody's dry cleaning. >> 9:00 a.m. departure. next behind the scenes of today's speech like who will be standing on this "x." peter doocy is right there live. he's going to tell us next. >> martha maccallum is also live in washington, d.c. and big things happening at the top of the hour, martha. >> they certainly are, steve. good morning to all of you. well it has been three popes, and 20 years of invitations to get to this day for john boehner. he has been waiting for this. and the day has finally arrived. history will be made, and francis, the first pope to ever enter the capitol arrives and addresses congress. it's a big moment so what will he say to this harshly divided body behind us? what impact might the pope have? d.c. is in stellar form as you can see and it awaits the arrival of the pontiff in the house chamber about 30 minutes from now. we will take you here. all of this action this morning live on capitol hill. when account lead craig wilson books at laquinta.com.
5:51 am
he gets a ready for you alert the second his room is ready. so he knows exactly when he can settle in and practice his big pitch. and when craig gets his pitch down pat, do you know what he becomes? great proposal! let's talk more over golf! great. better yet, how about over tennis? even better. a game changer! your 2 o'clock is here. oops, hold your horses. no problem. la quinta inns & suites is ready for you, so you'll be ready for business. the ready for you alert, only at lq.com. laquinta! this is a fox news alert. take a look. that is pope francis, just about a minute ago he came out of the vatican residence in northwest washington, and as you can see, just like yesterday, in fact, for a moment our producers thought this was an image from yesterday. just like yesterday some of the children and some of the people who work on embassy row near the vatican residence have lined up to shake the hand of the pope,
5:52 am
who very shortly is going to leave for capitol hill. >> meeting with children, talking with children, doing things unprompted without the ceremony. and word gets out to the kids, i think it's the pope. >> how incredible is this moment? he's set to depart at main clock a.m. sharp. anyone else with a 9:00 a.m. deadline probably wouldn't be outside with other people. he's reaching out, breaking the papal before his appearance there before a joint meeting of congress. following that he'll have an appearance on the west front of the capitol at 11:00 a.m. at 11:15 he will visit st. patrick's catholic church right in d.c. there. >> you know what? we were expecting him to come out at 9:00 because that's the time to leave. yesterday, the pope actually kept the president of the united states waiting for about ten minutes, because when he came out to get -- oh. how sweet is that? when he came out to get in to his fiat 500l, there were all those kids waiting, they wanted some selfies. they wanted a hug. he went over.
5:53 am
he spent ten minutes doing that. and so, today, it looks like, what they have done is the vatican residence, they decided let's go ahead, have him leave ten minutes early out of the building. he can do ten minutes with the hugging, get in the car, go down massachusetts, straight to the capitol. >> what a picture of inclusion. he just reaches out to the kids. and you see them so excited to be with him. i mean their smiles and excitement are pure. this isn't something they could have ever planned on. and their connection is real. >> yeah, he does look nervous. he's about to address congress for the first time in pope history and it doesn't seem to be fazing him. i think he knows what he's going to say. there's not going to be any teleprompters. you have security there but you have mostly children there. >> we do, indeed. we should point out that right now over washington, d.c., it is -- there's another full body embrace. that is just fantastic. this is a no drone zone because so many people have cameras. so many people have drones.
5:54 am
and washington is restricted air space anyway. but it is a no drone zone. it's also in effect for new york city. the pope is going to be leaving washington for jfk. he's going to arrive here i believe around 5:00 today, and then later, for philadelphia, pennsylvania. >> you get in trouble if you're security. >> he offers great hugs. he's a good hugger. offering blessings on the forehead of some of the children there. hand shakes. >> okay they're moving his fiat 500l to the end of this line of largely children. and i heard one report said some of the selfies we saw with some of the kids yesterday were kids who have -- go to a school nearby. also, keep in mind this particular vatican residence is on embassy row. and a number of these kids' families work at the embassy. >> and that child doesn't even know the pope just touched his
5:55 am
head. he's looking for his camera. live in the moment. don't get the picture. >> they want their selfie. oh, one surprised. it was actually there not just -- >> hold it a second, pope. >> but how generous are the adults in the situation to put the little children first, and in front to meet the pope, and receive a blessing from him. this most extraordinary day. >> absolutely. you know, once upon a time, the protocol was that you when you came in contact with the pope you would kiss his ring. but times have changed. and people really don't do that anymore. and -- >> he's not comfortable with it, steve. >> when the list of protocols came out, said really don't do that. just let us shake hands. do exactly what these folks are doing. >> exactly what he wants anyway. he just wants to see the faces of the people, of the united states, who are embracing him so warmly, as he is about to travel to the capitol. >> this is a man the first thing he did official capacity was to wash feet. >> yes. he's known for serving others.
5:56 am
you can tell he is fully in the moment being with the people. he currently has 7.2 million twitter followers. i have a feeling after this visit that will only continue to increase. his message of love, inclusion and serving one another rings true in his actions. >> peter doocy is up at the capitol where the pope is going to be heading for this first-ever joint meeting of congress. peter, tell us more. >> and leaders really do not want this address to be remembered like a state of the union where republicans and democrats clap for things they like and jeer at things that they do not like. so lawmakers have been given very specific instructions to be on their very best behavior. and so far, just one member has said they plan to stay home. that is republican congressman paul gosar who has an issue with the pope's stance on climate change. there are also specific restrictions on where lawmakers can sit. part of the center aisle has been blocked off. and the reason is they're trying
5:57 am
to prevent anyone from touching pope francis or putting their arms around him for a selfie. again today we've seen people lining up in the dark to have their tickets punched to stake a spot on the west front of the capitol. the crowd could grow to be as large as 50,000 strong for very brief remarks from the pope on the speaker's balcony. and the inside of u.s. capitol is as beautiful and historic as any building in this country. but for this occasion, officials decided to hang dark velour drapes in certain places because they feel it adds dignity and solemnity to the setup. plus it gives them the option to block people's view of the pope when he's on the move if they need to. there are also green "xs" marking the spot where pope francis will stand, including the spot in statuary hall next to a statue depicting father depicting father junipero serra who pope francis canonized yesterday at the basilica in northeast d.c. outside here on the east front, a smaller crowd, mostly staff and vips.
5:58 am
